Igboho had led rallies across the South West, including Ibadan, Osogbo, Akure, Abeokuta, Ado Ekiti to sensitise and mobilise the people for his â€˜Yoruba Nationâ€™ agenda.
Kanu had been detained by the Federal Government after he was extradited a few weeks ago. Igboho was also arrested at Cardinal Bernardin International Airport, Cotonou Republic of Benin and detained at Brigade criminelle in Cotonou.

The Cour Deâ€™appal De Cotonou, Benin Republic, last week adjourned the hearing of the case of embattled Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, till Monday.
The Beninise court ruled Igbohoâ€™s wife, Ropo, should be released unconditionally as there were no charges against her.
The court, however, ruled that Igboho be remanded in police custody till Monday.
The two were arrested at the CadjÃ¨houn Airport in Cotonou last Monday while they tried to catch a flight to Germany.
Igboho was earlier declared wanted by the Department of State Services for allegedly stockpiling arms, an allegation he denied.
The lawyers handling the case reported after the proceedings that lgboho cannot be extradited to Nigeria for two reasons. According to him, they include: Contrary to insinuations, Nigeria and Benin have no Extradition Agreement.
Nigeria has not been able to come up with charges that could lead the court to order lgbohoâ€™s extradition to Nigeria.
The adjourned case was to allow the Federal Government bring up whatever evidence they may have against Igboho.
